In considering all the logical reasons one would want to engage in bestiality, I decided to see how exactly safe the practice would be. Caviet: I'm definitely not an expert, and if you can suggest new data to insert and update this article to more accurate numbers, please leave a comment below.

Barring physical injury (Kicks, bites, scratches) I decided to look into possible zoonose's infection rates in the US. I looked up the infection rates from the CDC and other sources. I decided to find the most common zoonoses then try to mingle that information with the amount of zoophiles POSSIBLY living in the united states.

There are too many bestiality related studies to name when it comes to a percentage of population who are zoophiles or atleast had sexual contact with animals. It has been stated by kinsey to be as high as 5% of the population whom had contact with an animal sexually to as low as 1% consider by other studies. To give a rough estimate of zoo population in the US, i will be as restrictive on the size of group we use. We will use .5% of the US population as a base (half of the lowest estimate) and thats 1,625,000 people who are practicing bestiality in a year.

Now we need to number the cases of serious zoonose's in the US. Information chart for zoonoses common in the US. I will not be including fecal-borne illnesses as I assume your animal is fit health, you are cleaning your animal beforehand, and also are not involved with fecal or scat fetishes. As alot of these "Zoonoses" are directly related to fecal-oral ingestion. The rest of these illnesses are very much zoonoses.

----------------------------------------- Leptospirosis - 100-200 cases - Will use the high number of 200 cases per year. ----------------------------

Human cases of leptospirosis are rare in the United States. According to the CDC, only about 100 to 200 leptospirosis cases are reported each year in the United States. About 50 percent of all U.S. leptospirosis cases occur in Hawaii, the CDC said.

The largest outbreak of leptospirosis ever recorded in the United States occurred in 1998, when more than 1,000 athletes participating in summer triathlons in Illinois and Wisconsin were potentially exposed to the bacteria, and 110 became infected, according to the CDC.

----------------------------------------Brucellosis - 94 Cases/year, will use the worst case of 94 ------------------------------------------ - 67 of these cases were animal related, 80% of those cases involved swine livestock husbandry. 53% of the total cases were due to undercooked meats and unpasteurized dairy products from foreign lands.

----------------------------------------Tularemia - 100 Cases/year -----------------------------------------

-----------------------------------Q-Fever - 120 Cases Per year---------------------------------------

-----------------------------------Echinococcosis - 48 cases/yr***------------------------------------- - Not much information on US infection rates, only reported 48 deaths in 18 years, so i'll make it 48/year to give worst case.


I will be assuming ALL of these cases of disease ARE from bestiality, to give the absolute worst possible case AGAINST practicing zoophilia. This is against their very own data in the studies, that the majority of these illnesses are caused by other factors not involved with animal contact.

In an annual year, there could be a possible 562 Cases of a serious zoo-nose infection out of 1,625,000 practicing zoophile americans. (A very conservative number of people study wise) That is a possible infection rate of 0.000345846% (562/1625000)

But What does that percentage even mean? What can we compare it to? Naturally, lets compare it to the STD rate of the US population in general. Here is an infographic.

Excluding HPV infection, the current US population with an EXISITING STD is 31,617,000. I won't include the new cases of infection but simply this charts existing cases of STD infection to give the best case possible.

(31,617,000/325000000) is a gross 0.097283077% random chance of infection of a STD. So roughly a 10% chance of an STD, based solely on numbers, and not circumstances. (as a majority of these STD cases are in the LGBT community related to unsafe-sex practices)

There is caveats to my analysis, some of the STDs are not as dangerous as the zoonoses. There is MORE human sex on a regular than bestiality on a regular basis, and the Zoonoses number could be higher if we had more data on how much bestiality occurs. (Average couple has sex twice a week average).

Lets take that 10% infection rate vs the zoos .03% infection rate, and lets make 100x the cases of zooborne illness, you would still only be at 3% infection rate's for zoophiles.

It is why, bestiality is commonly practiced in Colombia. It is out of the SAFETY of the youth to had sex with female mules/donkeys over the street prostitutes whom could harbor many STD's and where medical care is not as readily available. (See Donkey Love Documentary)

The infection rate for a zoonose is incredibly low. Medical, and public health concerns should infact SUPPORT zoophilia as a SAFE sex practice. There is no reason not to when the data shows it be safe sex.

Zoophilia is freedom.
